It looks like Samyang is getting ready to announce an AF 14mm f/2.8 lens for Canon’s RF mount.
The sooner third party manufacturers get lenses out for the RF mount, the better things will be for EOS R shooters and for the manufacturers themselves.

I wonder if its an EF lens with a revised mount for the RF bodies. Basically, a built-in adapter. The spacing between the rearmost lens element and the sensor will tell the story.
To answer my own question, I looked at the diagrams of both the EF and RF 14/2.8 autofocus lenses. It is a new design.

RF first, then EF (keep in mind the flange distance is much greater for the EF than the RF mount...):RF_AF_14_28.jpg

Wow, interesting new design. I have the EF version and like it a lot. I'll look forward to comparisons and pricing.
It looks to be an RF-mount adjusted version of the Samyang 14mm F/2.8 FE lens.


Sharp in the center, not that sharp in the corners (perfectly sharp for cropped 4k video though).
